The Red Shoes

The Red Shoes made from Paper and Fabric with hardbacked book cover background.

Small 15cm long, 19cm wide, 8cm depth, paper fabric assemblage dress.

Hans Christian Anderson rises out of the page in this assemblage inspired from a tale of generations past, The Red Shoes. A haunting tale of the desire of the eyes, the red shoes glow blood red behind a dress symbolic of the beautiful Karen.

A small three dimensional assemblage comprising a backdrop fashioned from the remnants of the book from which the dress is made. The book has been fashioned into a miniature theatre for a tale of dramatic proportions and one that has been dramatised many times over.
